Chicken Enchilada Recipe

Chicken Enchiladas


I don’t have any Mexican restaurants close by so unless I am planning a trip out of town in order to have Mexican cuisine I am required to prepare it myself. It has been awhile since I had Chicken Enchiladas so I decided to give this Chicken Enchiladas Recipe a try. The original recipe called to mix the sour cream in with the chicken during preparation, but I decided to hold it out and use the sour cream as condiment on top of the Enchiladas which I think was a good choice. This is a pretty hefty recipe, and will serve eight. Most of the time involved with this Chicken Enchiladas Recipe, is cooking the chicken; other than that it is a simple recipe with a delicious combination of flavors.
